Another update on the Warp 8 restoration

I’m happy to be able to post another update on Mark’s restoration of his incredibly rare Warp 8 (be sure to read this article to see what it’ll look like when he’s all done). He writes,

Here’s some more pictures of the Warp. I’m really pleased at how well it’s coming together. As you can see the body is now completely attached to the chassis and the framework is in place ready for the dash to be fitted to, when we’ve decided exactly what we want it to look like. The floors are all in place as are the front and rear bulkheads and for the first time we have been able to try some tidy seats in it, but have real height problems. I think the car was designed more for looks than practicality, so we will have to sort out some one-off seats, but we still have a lot more to do before we need to worry about that. I feel a lot happier about it now it’s starting to look more like a car again. The next job is the doors and I’m not looking forward to that. I’ve worked out how to go about it and it’s not going to be easy. I’ll be in touch soon.

He’s really putting an amazing amount of work into this project to make it a solid “real” car! It’s a real thrill getting to see this car getting the attention it deserves.
